"things that never go bad" pasta

It may be an unfounded myth, but anchovies and sun-dried tomatoes never seem to go bad.

pantry pasta
In an attempt to free myself of the hoarding instinct, I've refused to buy anything but fresh vegetables at the market for the past few weeks. We're slowly eating through the contents of our pantry and freezer. So far, we've used two cans of tuna, a can of tomatoes, half a bag of pasta, pork ribs, ham and frozen pork from Thanksgiving, and one can of garbanzo beans. Still a lot of pantry to go. So, in that vein, this meal was developed. Sun-dried tomatoes and anchovies sitting in our fridge finally got used up. I should have thrown in some of those olives, too. I minced the garlic, anchovies, and sun-dried tomatoes (and a stray jalapeño sitting around), sautéed those in the tomato oil, fried up the sausage and tossed it all with pasta.
